Acne Medication And Treatment

May 26, 2008
When I was an adolescent it was believed that a poor diet contributed to aggravating acne outbreaks. Now over twenty years later I have read many articles and books that stated that diet has no little to no effect at all on acne. So in other words diet as a natural treatment for acne does not have a positive or negative effect. For years we have been strictly told that we are what we eat and I believe that our skin is a reflection of our health and therefore a natural acne treatment is often a cure for some people.

It is said that for many people with other more severe outbreaks, home remedies for the treatment of thier acne are not a solution for their problems. This is usually encouraged by the sale of expensive and ongoing medications to treat a a problem that could be taken care of relatively inexpensively. There are prescription acne medications that you take by mouth as well as prescribed topical medications that may help more serious acne problems. Some of them work as a treatment but never an acne cure and some are known to have horrible side effects.

The problem with taking many prescribed acne medications is that they can have many uncomfortable side effects where as natural acne treatments rarely have any at all. Sometimes your body adjusts to the acne medications that you are taking and the effects diminish over time, however, the other downside is that when you have stopped taking acne medications your outbreaks start all over again. Herbal acne products and medications normally do not have this effect. Home remedies for acne specifically tea tree oil, Benzoyl peroxide and good old fashion tooth paste worked better than the most expensive prescribed acne medications and you did not have to worry about scaring like you sometimes do with harsh prescription acne medications.

People with severe acne problems are often prescribed an aggressive acne treatment using strong antibiotics to take care of the bacteria problem that may be causing and aggravating their acne. The problem with using antibiotics like tetracycline as an acne treatment is your body builds up an immunity over time to the acne medication and no longer works and causes more bacteria to grow therefore causing breakouts and often worse than before. The good thing is a natural acne treatment may be the best because your bodies immune system heals itself. Fruits and vegetables, fish, chicken can all become a natural acne treatment.

It is best to make wise choices when it comes to choosing an acne treatment. Remember that there are many wonderful products on the market but you have to be careful to create for yourself the best natural acne treatment for you. Your skin may not respond the same way to some treatments for acne as it may have for someone else. So be wise, be watchful and be aware and don't think that your acne can't be treated because a certain product failed for you in the past. It just means you need to try another sort of treatment.
